  • Pattern:  Laura Ashley Floral
  • Made in China
  • Vintage: 1980’s
  • Details: This is a super pretty ceramic vase, in one of Laura Ashley’s famous floral prints from the 1980’s.  It has pink cabbage roses, white and yellow flowers and trails of flowing green leaves on the top half (slightly different design on front and back).  The bulbous bottom part of the vase has yellow and white stripes and a floral garland.  At the foot you’ll find swirls of pink and more pink florals on a yellow background.  All together, makes it an absolutely charming, very feminine, (maybe even a little Victorian), elegant vase.  It retains its original sticker from FTD that reads:  “A gift from FTD, Made in China”, and has the Mercury Man logo.  It also retains the original “Laura Ashley” sticker logo, this is the old logo, first used in 1982.  These prints are back in demand since the release of the movie, “Little Women”.  The prairie dress, a Laura Ashley classic, and these small floral prints have become the “it” item for women. Vintage Laura Ashley dresses of the 70’s and 80’s have sold for over $600 online.  Great gift for an FTD collector, or a Laura Ashley fan.  But even if you’re neither, this is a very pretty vase and perfect for Spring and Summer bouquets.  Great for shabby chic and cottage style decor!

FTDA, known as ‘Florists Telegraph Delivery Association’ (FTDA aka FTD) was founded in 1910 when a group of 13 American retail florists agreed to exchange orders for out-of-town deliveries. They began telegraphing orders to each other from different states because flowers didn’t always last the long train trips required for delivery in far away places. The gold Mercury Man logo was first used by FTD in 1914, he is known as the god “Hermes” , messenger to Zeus.  He is also referred to as the Roman god, “Mercury” who traveled extensively, delivering important mail from one sender to another.  In 1923 a British unit of FTD was formed in response to the success of the network in America.  In 1946 International Telegraph Florists was established between FTD, the FTD British Unit and Europe’s floral clearinghouse Fleurop, they became “Interflora”.  By 1965, they expanded to include international transactions, and the company was renamed “Florists’ Transworld Delivery”, to reflect its growing worldwide presence and its partnership with Interflora.   Today they have grown to be the largest flower delivery network, associated with over 58,000 affiliated flower shops in over 140 countries.   Interflora is now a subsidiary of FTD Companies, acquired in 2006.
